NAIOP Southern Nevada’s Bus Tour Committee successfully put on the 2016 “A Whole New Ball Game” Bus Tour in October. The event showcased a mix of 31 industrial, office and retail projects that were recently completed, under construction or planned for future development.
We used the success from the 2015 Bus Tour building to increase registered attendees from 264 to 294 in 2016. Sponsorships were secured at a much quicker rate.
The theme was very fitting for the current state of our real estate market after so many years of being stagnant due to the recession. It was well received by attendees and the addition of game sponsorships added a new dynamic that provided more engagement with sponsors and great entertainment for the attendees.
One of the big differences for this year’s event was the timing of the construction process for the projects on the tour. This year’s tour was especially exciting because we had many more tangible buildings to drive by as opposed to last year when the majority of the projects were just starting and only turning dirt at the time of the tour. The ability to see the actual walls tilted on these projects shows that we are full steam ahead into a new phase of the development cycle where NAIOP developers are capitalizing on future growth prospects.
Our goal for this event is not only to showcase these exciting new developments for our members and also to generate awareness about the viability of new development in our market. It was a very successful event.
